"Well worth the effort"
Many years ago we discovered the attraction of using our allocated two week holiday in the Canaries by first spending a few days on Tenerife (Los Cristianos) then boarding the ferry in the harbour to La Gomera for a week then returning and spending a few more days on Tenerife before flying home. The ferry crossing takes about 45 minutes and is thoroughly pleasant - free wifi and good cafe and shopping facilities on board. We don't find there is a need for a car on Tenerife but we ore book a car which we pick up at the harbour at San Sebastián on La Gomera. Some may feel this us all too much trouble - but do try it. The ferry crossing really couldn't be more straightforward. The cases are put in lockers on a Fred Olsen supplied "train" before you board the ferry and are easy cleated and then transferred to a hire car when you disembark - easy. Cannot speak highly enough if the service from Direct Ferries - cheaper and more convenient than booking direct with the ferry company.

Due to flight being delayed (10th April 2015) we were too late for our booking on the 14.00 crossing. Your staff transferred tickets for us to travel on the 19.00 to La Gomera. The lady in your left luggage office also 'phoned our car hire people in La Gomera for us, to change the arrangements with them. We thank everyone at Fred Olsen who took the worry away from us.

"Ferry to La Gomera and return"
I found it easy to book these ferry crossings on directferries website. All that was required was to arrive at the ports at least 30 minutes before sailing time then join the queue present our passports for scanning - no paper no hassle!!

Fast crossing and quick boarding however the best seats are taken by the foot passengers. It would be good to reserve some space and seats for car passengers.

The Spanish town and port of Los Cristianos is located on the Canary Island of Tenerife. The centre of the town is around Los Cristianos Bay but is gradually expanding inland. There are many older building that remain in the town which pre-date the increase in tourism which began in the late 20th century. The town has two beaches, made up of black volcanic sand, and a number of bars, restaurants and clubs that cater for the increase in visitor numbers. In the promenade area of the town, away from the beaches, there are many shops including boutiques, designer labels and many other places to pick up a bargain.
By following the promenade to the west, Los Cristianos gradually blends into Playa de las Americas which has a reputation of the being the party capital of Tenerife. This is because it has many nightclubs and bars but also has an excellent selection of shops. For a more sedate way to spend your time, take a ferry to the island of La Gomera where visitors will find rainforests waiting to be explored. The crossing to La Gomera takes around 70 minutes.
From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Valverde, San Sebastian de la Gomera and Santa Cruz de La Palma.
The Spanish city of San Sebastian de la Gomera is the capital city of the island of La Gomera, in the Canary Islands. Due to its historical links with the discovery of America it is also known as "Isla Colombina". The city developed around a natural bay and still visible today, and of interest with tourists, are many preserved monuments such as the Church of La Asuncion, the Pozo de la Aguada and the Torre del Conde (The Tower of the Count). Tourist facilities in the city are excellent and include a wide range of leisure facilities, especially a number of different water based sports in the port area of the city.
Head inland and there are many hiking and cycling trails to enjoy and are a great way to explore the mountainous terrain of the island along with some of its natural treasures such as the Majona Nature Reserve and the National Park of Garajonay.
As well as numerous daily crossings to the neighbouring island of Tenerife, the port also offers trips around the island by catamaran.
